The enforcement of the two-hour limit for parking meters remains in place. Drivers who park at a meter for longer than two hours will be ticketed. If individuals need to stay downtown longer, they are reminded to move their car or park at an off-street location or use public transit.

Enforcement of vehicles that stay parked on city roads and streets for longer than 24 hours is also still in effect.
